Controversial yes, true also yes.
I stumbled upon this project recently: github.com/simonv3/covenant-ge

The technical part can be summarised as literally 'curl -L | sed ... > file.name' and it has almost 5000 lines of dependencies in package-lock.json ...

This has basically confirmed for me that people have given up on actually understanding what they are doing and just producing any kind of output is considered acceptable. Doing something seems to trump thinking more often then not.
